Hogans tour Government House with O’Malleys

Saturday was another big day for Gov.-elect Larry Hogan after his 7-hour visit to the White House Friday. He and his wife Yumi got a tour of Government House from Gov. Martin O’Malley and his wife, Judge Catherine Curran (Katie) O’Malley, and before that he spoke to the Maryland Republican Party’s convention meeting at the Turf Valley Resort in Ellicott City.

In a statement, the governor-elect said: “The Government House as well as the State House are beautifully decorated for the holidays. I want to thank Governor O’Malley and the First Lady for their hospitality this morning. They have been gracious to me, my family, and my staff throughout the transition, and I am grateful to them for their words of encouragement as I prepare to be sworn in as the 62nd Governor of Maryland.”
